Friday Meme’s ~A Most Curious Murder
Since there are a few Friday Meme’s that I want to participate in I have decided to post them all in one post.
Feature and Follow Friday is hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee.
What are two of your favorite Book to Movie adaptations?
The 1995 version of Pride and Prejudice and the 1994 version of Persuasion.
Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader. Take the first sentence of your current read and post it.
Jenny Weston moves home to Bear Falls, Michigan to nurse her bruised ego back to health after a bitter divorce. But the idyllic vision of her charming hometown crumbles when her mother’s little library is destroyed.
The next door neighbor, Zoe Zola, a little person and Lewis Carroll enthusiast, suspects local curmudgeon Adam Cane, but when he’s suddenly found dead in Zoe’s fairy garden, all roads lead back to her. Jenny, however, believes Zoe innocent, so the two women team up to find the true culprit, investigating the richest family in Bear Falls, interrogating a few odd townspeople and delving into old, hidden transgressions–until another body turns up.
Inspired by Alice in Wonderland, Elizabeth Kane Buzzelli’s quaint and compelling series debut A Most Curious Murder will delight cozy mystery readers new and old.
So this is one of my next reads, and I am a little nervous because I didn’t notice the Alice in Wonderland part when I first grabbed it. I am not a fan of Wonderland, so fingers crossed I will enjoy it. 🙂
“Oh dear,” said a little voice from behind Jenny Weston, who knelt in the wet grass, in drizzling rain, early morning light making long shadows of the destruction around her.
“‘Like jars of strawberry jam.’ That’s from Alice in Wonderland, you know. But everyone knows that,” the voice, belonging to a little girl, said.
“Go away,” Jenny mumbled. She wished the kid would leave her alone to face the ruin of her mother’s Little Library by herself.
Curious about what her Little Library was that got ruined. Doesn’t sound like an actual library, so hmmm. 🙂
The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda @ Freda’s Voice. It’s like Tuesday Teaser but you have a specific place in your read that you have to turn in your read (page 56 or 56%) to get your teaser.
Zoe stuck a finger into the air. “As I remember, I stepped on a roll of duct tape on Aaron’s floor when we found his body. You remember, don’t you, Jenny?” Jenny shook her head. “With a body and all that dog crap on the floor, I wasn’t watching out for duct tape.”
I am with Jenny with a body and dog crap on the floor I wouldn’t be looking out for duct tape…lol.
Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week we are asked a question to answer so it reminds me a bit of FF and so I thought it made a good fit to my other Friday Memes.
Do you always put a book cover in your posts when you are mentioning books or just text?
I am a visual person, and a cover judge, yes I am…lol. So I must see a cover and it drives me crazy when I check out a review or any post talking about the book and I don’t see a cover. So, of course, I always post a cover of the book I am talking about. If it’s a series then I at least post the first book in the series.
